Amazingly well done
This is the best LOTR audiobook out there. The voice acting is reminiscent of the movie actors/actresses. The music and sound effects are excellent and add a lot to the experience. Even if you've read these books before, its worth a listen.
Thanks to Phil Dragash for his hard work producing the series, it was a labor of love with no expectation of monetary gain.

Skips a small section in one chapter
This is one of the great masterworks of audiobooks, sound design, and one-man acting. It's then all the more regrettable that this has the same problem as the old Limetorrents version. The file for "A Journey in the Dark" skips the following: the walk of a mile to find the door of Moria, which introduces the door-trees and and sets the scene; the unpacking of the pony and Sam's distress at leaving him; Gandalf's placing of words-of-warding on Bill the Pony; the initial search for the invisible door and some verbal tussle between Gimli and Legolas which reveals some deep-time back-story about the tensions between Dwarves and Elves. As for the skip, I suspect it's an MP3 encoding glitch, not a deliberate excision by Phil.

The “many meetings” chapter still seems to be missing in the torrent download though.

Best Lord of the Rings recordings!
These amazing recordings were my first exposure to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy and I was transfixed by them for days at a time. I’m so happy that these recordings are finally available!
Phil Dragash originally published these recordings on YouTube with some very beautiful artwork as the backdrop for the videos, as well as the music and audio clip mix, that back up his narration. It was a very enjoyable and immersive experience.

The chapter "many meetings" in between flight to the Ford and council of elrond is missing.
